can be summed up in two words, government unions. unions use their power to press government to put their interests first. in contract negotiations unions always insist on seniority-based layouts and this gives guaranteed job security to senior members. but it also means the school districts are forced to lay off the new hires first even if those teachers are star performers. parents object but the unions have decided they can accept that. the unions also want understandably bear generation retirement benefits for their members. in michigan 27% of school districts budgets provide pensions and health benefits and it's not hard to see what. is a state can retire after 25 years on the job and collect full benefits i have a lot of teachers retire in their late 40s or early 50's. but if you care about getting dollar spent on the classroom that is a bit of a problem in the state facing a tremendous budget crunch like michigan is but when the legislature propose raising the minimum retirement age not to 65 social security h.b. 260 the michigan education association used their political clo

government calls for dialogue at the beginning of the events in my country, but this call did not find any positive response from most opposition parties. moreover, my government responded positively throughout the crisis to each and every sincere initiative that aims to find a peaceful solution, a solution that is based on national dialogue among syrians, that rejects external manipulation, and that stops the shedding of syrian blood and preserving syria and its future. based on this principle position, and despite the syrian leadership's conviction that there are no sincere intentions among some regional and international parties that push for the escalation of the syrian crisis, which fuel its fire and heat it by forcing all attempts for dialogue, and insisting on creating a state of instability to ensure the need for foreign interference. despite all this, syria cooperated with the arab observers mission, and the subsequent international initiatives linked to the work of the united nations special envoy kofi annan. out of principle, syria received the united nations supervision is seen

journal and government executive for inviting me to this year's a cyber security summit because i can think of no more urgent topic in today's interconnected world. the cyber domain is woven into the fabric of our daily lives. while this increased productivity has led to significant transformations and advances across our country and around the world, it has increased the importance. the flip side of all the good that comes from the internet is that cyber attacks have increased over the next decade. here is a quick sense of scale. last year, u.s. computer emergency readiness team that surprise -- provides response for the federal civilian part of of the partners, last year, the u.s. responded to more than 106,000 incident reports and released more than 5000 actionable cyber security alerts. specialized teams for vulnerable and industrial systems. the words cyber security encompasses a broad range of malicious activity from the nile of service attacks to the theft of intellectual property to intrusions' against the government that works. last year, a water plant for a small town in tex

states as well. i have a jobs plan. we need to back government away from small business, need to have government reduce regulations that are such a burden on businesses so they can create jobs. we need to reform the tax code. we need to reduce energy costs. we need to help small businesses to create those opportunities. >> senator kerrey, you have 30 seconds. >> senator fischer signed a pledge that would require you should pay the same taxes employees pay. under your balanced budget, unemployment would double. i have examined the amendment, and it would double unemployment. >> i disagree. with regard to the buffet rule, if you are going to tax every millionaire, that can run the government for 17 hours. let's look for businesses to create jobs and make opportunities in the state, and we can do it by reducing regulations, by having an energy plan, by repealing "obamacare." >> the next question. >> a question in this cycle is, are we better at today than we were four years ago? are we? >> no, we are not better off with our economy, with our position in the world. we have seen a failure

provides response and defense against cyber attacks for the federal civilian part of the government, the dot.gov domains, last year it responded to more than 106,000 incident reports and released more than 5,000 cybersecurity alerts to our public and private partners. specialized dhs teams conducted 78 assessments of vulnerable industrial control systems, the possible gateway to a catastrophic attack. the word "cybersecurity" encompasses a broad range of malicious activity from denial of service attacks to the theft of intellectual process to intrusions against government networks and systems that control our critical infrastructure. last year, for example, a water plant for a small town in texas disconnected its control system from the internet after a hacker posted pictures of the facility's internal controls. more recently, cyber attackers penetrated the networks of companies that operate natural gas pipelines. and computer systems in critical sectors of the economy including the financial, nuclear and chemical industries are increasingly targeted. we also face a range of traditi
apparently shut it down. u.s. government is not required to mediate any disagreements between the two parties of the blue mountain libya partnership. saying it is currently satisfactory. there was no immediate response on the comment. a u.s. official is not denying reports the administration is laying the initial groundwork behind the attack as many as one dozen possible targets, ashley. ashley: thank you very much. let's get into this a little bit more, joining me now, retired united states army lieutenant colonel and former fox news middle east former senior advisor to governor romney and also author of the book "the coming revolution, struggling for freedom in the middle east." as we get more details on the events prior to the benghazi attacks it appears in the days, the weeks and the months prior there was plenty of warning signs. why is it these were the very least ignored? >> the main problem the administration has in libya is being unable to connect information from the various agencies. the fact there are militia on the ground proceeding as rebels. penetrated by al qaeda. because it w
of this, there also will be political pressure on the swiss government by the e.u., particularly the french and germans, to get them to kind of close this, this loophole. melissa: yeah. >> it will always be an uphill climb and sanctions aren't perfect. right now they appear to be having some effect. melissa: we're talking about this today because of course the iranian president is here in new york making his speech in front of the u.n. at the same time we're watching that, that we're reading that iran being able to sell this oil and it makes americans and our viewers feel like we're not getting any traction on the front of trying to slow down iran from getting nuclear capability. what do you think is the best thing that the u.s. and the u.n. could do right now that we're not doing? >> ahmadinejad of course is a lame duck and in any event the theocracy, the mullahs in tehran are the ones that really control the future of the country and they don't appear to be weakening in materials of their position. melissa: no. >> so i think that we really have to, of course continue these sanc
between them more than any of us. so what is the government doing? after 2014, where there is a new kind of american focus on the region, and i would like to think if all goes as well as i hope it will, it will be somewhat more focused on maintaining the peace in pakistan and investing in pakistan's long-term future and society a little bit more than in its politics. similarly, to expect pakistan will be altered is not realistic. i do not think we can apply it we can make pakistan into switzerland and a few years as -- in a few years by fixing them up. i do not think that will happen. nor would it be right for us to think that is a worthy goal. we should see if we can do what we can to help the efforts to internationalize pakistan. it is an inward-looking country. this bilateral narrative and focus. sadly, when you talk to pakistanis and they talk about seeing the tail lights of south korea, turkey, and bangladesh, seeing them ahead of them. koreans sent teams to pakistan in the 1960's find out what pakistan had done right. the ambassador of thechinese introduced them to one of these pro
over the years. there's two main categories they have. one is how to reduce the size of government, and the other half of it is this model legislation that's in the corporate good. in other words, there's a profit driven legislation. how can you open up a new market? how can you privatize something that can open up a market for a company? and between those two divisions you are kind of getting to the same end goal which is really kind of ultimate privatization of everything. >> mark pocan is something of an expert on alec. in fact, to learn as much about it as he could, he became a member. >> what i realized is if you join alec for a mere hundred dollars as a legislator you have the full access like any corporate member. >> he also took himself to an alec conference for a first-hand look. >> hi, i'm state representative mark pocan. welcome to my video blog. i'm outside the marriott on canal street in new orleans at the alec convention, american legislative exchange council. that was where you watch the interaction of a room full of lobbyists-free drinks, free cigars, wining, dining
that to? >> i think we are at a fiscal and economic cliff. i think we have pursued government spending programs that have created a debt that is out of control. at the convention come after talking, i went home to my hotel at 1:30 a.m. and i was looking on my iphone at twitter. and the comedian paa pound stone had sent a tweet that evening. i don't know her, but she said " ted cruz just said that, when his daughter was born, the debt was $5 trillion and now it is $16 trillion. what the heck did she do?" [laughter] >> you think the debt is putting the nation in crisis. >> along with government spending, is causing the dead. we have seen a growing expansion in the power of the federal government. it is crippling small businesses. >> you are the national co-chair of the obama-bided campaign. >> i would put the challenge that we have as a nation in a different context. and say that, to the extent that we are a nation in "crisis," although i would not describe it as that because i believe that we can fundamentally overcome this and that we can do it in a fairly rational and reasonable way,
the health- care system overnight, but one thing we can do is not rely on the government or the insurance companies. we can make this system more transparent so that you do not have to walk in blind when you choose your health care. if patients are increasingly frustrated with the problems of health care, know that a recent mayo study found that 46 percent of doctors feel they are burnt out. there is frustration on both sides. we have to face an important question now as a society. are we going to believe as a groups that patients have our right to know about the quality of their hospitals? for the first time, this information is being collected. if it brought there for the public more completely, if they could make -- if it was out there for the public more completely, they could make more informed decisions. host: yvonne and maryland accurate -- yvonne in maryland. caller: i have a question for you. i have a family member that is at a local hospital. they went in for a potassium replacement. i thought they would get it in the emergency room and just be there for one or two days. now the

. >> talk about a government reduction. if we could run the government like this. >> steve: from pasta to politic politics. militias. at the same time there are new questions where this investigation is going if anywhere. remember it has been nearly two weeks since the deadly september 11 attack on a u.s. consulate in benghazi. that is where we begin. i'm bill hemmer. good morning to "america's newsroom.". martha: good morning, everybody. i'm martha maccallum. there are still really a lot of unanswered questions. it is still unclear what the libyan government is doing to bring those killers to justice. president obama yesterday telling the u.n. assembly that america will get to the bottom of the murders of chris stevens and the others. >> the attack on civilians in benghazi were attacks on america. there should be no doubt we will be relentless tracking down the killers and bringing them tobill: how possit while order in libya is still unknown? we want to begin our coverage now. greg palkot streaming live out of tripoli. what is the latest on this militia crackdown there, greg? >> repo
government aid. that's a real contrast to senator mccain who in 2008 had a pretty aggressive housing plan this. administration ended up being less aggressive than the republican opposition wanted to in 2008. >> we'll have to leave it there. thank you bothful >> thank you. [captions copyright national cable satellite corp. 2012] >> there's a lot of research out there that, in fact, mobile usage is even higher among minority communities than it is among white communities. i've seen some startling research that in some of these minority communities, 70% or 80% of the usage of the broadband is through mobile applications. i'm not a critic of mobile broadband in any way whatsoever. after the wireless transition, we're in the business, so no reason for me to be critical. my comment is not a platform comment. it's more a device comment. and that is if you're going to do mobile on a laptop and get real broadband speed, l.t.e.-type speeds, i don't have any problem. if you're in the educational context and talking about mobile smart phone and a lot of this access of broadband, in minority communiti
you think the government should push for? >> this is an absolutely critical question. this is critical for individual families. even with an 11% reduction in the number of underwater families in the first six months of this year, we still have over 10 million families under water. they owe more on their homes and their homes are worth. 90% are paying their bills every month. they're doing everything they can to meet their responsibility. they are locked out of savings of over $3,000 a year. it is like a tax cut. for those families, it is a problem. it is also a problem for our economy. one of the most important ways for monetary policy is through consumer debt. they spend it in support of local businesses. whether it is fixing the roof are going out to dinner or what ever. it creates jobs. the fact that there is not as much refinancing is a problem. that is why a year ago when the president put forth his american jobs act, he also said "we will do more about refinancing." the first thing he did is say we're going to take the actions we can with their own powers to help more families re
a number of people living off the government. you know, my wife and i have given so much back to the st. louis city schools at roosevelt high school, for the past six years we've been knee-deep in the problem center city. and by the way, we 50,000 kids now with normandie going the other way and not accredited schools, 50,000. philip busch stadium standing room only. we need more people employed in the state. we need more opportunity, we need more dreams to be fulfilled and we are simply languishing at the bottom of the barrel almost every economic category. you know, a lot of education is leadership and it starts at the top. i think there's well-intentioned people. were starting to show signs of progress and it was. we been in there. we've been in the trenches. for six years we've been trying to find a solution to the problems. kansas city, we can help getting it going from the ideas we have. there is racial disparity that comes to economic opportunity and jobs. in the best gift we give somebody as a career. >> jim higgins. >> okay, well one of the most inefficient things you can do wit
's a government number. i think both of these guys should be looking for permanent middle class tax cuts. permanent middle class tax cuts so that take-home pay will go up. i'll give you the last word. >> i found myself strangely agreeing with your plan to cut the middle class and take away the deductions and keep tax rates for people who make a lot of money like you and i fairly high. i think that makes abundant good sense. but we're forgetting one thing. the biggest challenge may be even more than anything is our debt and our deficit. and i think with governor romney and paul ryan figured out was they can't give $5 trillion worth of tax cuts and still eat into the deficit, which i think is our biggest national problem. >> i think -- >> you're right. he might be able to do it. he might be able to do it if they did your plan. >> i'm telling you. you know, you were a good tax break governor. the pennsylvania tax break today is still very low. what is it? about 3%? >> the effective rate is 3.4%. >> do you know how amazing that is for the northeast and east? that's an amazing thing. that mak
networks for the poor in new mexico. i believe if the federal government would have block granted the state of new mexico 43% less money, done away with all the strings and the mandates that i could have effectively overseen the delivery of health care to the poor. i think you apply that same template to medicare, health care for those over 65, get the federal government out of the health care business completely, give it up to the states -- in this case block grants that balance revenu with expenditures -- and that's how we're going to get out of this. we're going to -- giving it up to the states, 50 laboratories of innovation and best practice, i think that's exactly what we will have. we'll have some fabulous success, we'll also have some horrible failure. failure will get avoided, success will get emulated. but that's how we're going to find our way out of this. >> host: gary johnson is joining us from new mexico this morning. he will be with us for about 40 more minutes. we'll put the phone numbers on the bottom of the screen as we take a look at the libertarian nominee and his positio
government in my judgment. then hillary put out a magnificent statement which was followed by the white house repudiating the american embassy statement and making a statement calling the egyptian government to task. and libya we were more conciliatory because the libyan president had to denounce the attack. but that's notted ." i mean, if the libyan government can't control its cops and its military and provide protection for foreign embassies, it's not a government. and we should be denunciatory. and we should punish. i doubt that there is a single country in the world in western civilization that wouldn't have immediately called back its ambassador and egypt still possible and certainly cut off or put in terms as it related to the two billion that egypt receives from the united states and i'm sure libya receives money -- i don't know how much, but i'm sure it does. and the amount was greater because the imbass door from libya had help arab spring. i've never been supportive of the arab spring. i know the columnists and the "times" and elsewhere extol it. we're friends with people who i'm s
are dependent on government very much -- >> reporter: but for romney when it rains it pours. his two-day under steady showers has a feel of a race against time. a new poll quinnipiac finds romney trailing the president by ten points in ohio, nine points in florida and 12 in pennsylvania. an abc "the washington post" poll may explain why. 54% said they had an unfavorable view of romney's comments on voters who don't pay taxes. romney told cnn he's not worried about the numbers. >> we're taking our message to the people of ohio and across the country. and polls go up and down. but frankly you're going to see the support that i need to become president on election day. >> reporter: but he's facing some strong economic headwinds in ohio where the governor, john casic, touted his state's recovery at a romney event. >> i hope you all know ohio's coming back from 48th in job creation to number four. number one in the midwest. >> reporter: joined by gulf legend and ohio native jack nicholas, romney said the president shouldn't get a mulligan or do-over. >> now there's over $16 trillion in debt. if he
values? spell them out. >> using government as a communal progressive force to protect the safety net and to come together and invest in innovation, education, infrastructure. we're in it together. versus the ryan budget, which used as a stand-in first republican nominee, which says we're on it alone, get rid of government and give you a voucher, find medicare on your own. here comes romney and he sort of fits the mold. he's a 1 percenter. he shows no empathy, even before the 47%. >> a pure market guy. >> they use bain, from the beginning, as cynthia noted, as a value. he's out there making money. i'm thinking of wider ames and goals. >> a new bloomberg goal that has president obama leading mitt romney by six points nationally. for one big reason, half of the polls say they have an unfavorable view of mitt romney. bloomberg reports, this is a september high for a presidential challenger in the last three decades. bloomberg quotes a 40-year-old insurance agent from virginia, self-described libertarian on why she's going to vote for obama. now, this isn't cheerleading for obama by any m
minutes." >> does the government have a responsibility to provide health care to the 50 million americans who don't have it today? >> well, we do provide care for people who don't have insurance, people -- if someone has a heart attack, they don't sit in their apartment and die. we pick them up in an ambulance and take them to the hospital and give them care, and different states have different ways of providing for that care. >> that's the most expensive way to do it. >> well -- >> in the emergency room. >> again, different states have different ways of doing that. >> it's interesting the people who don't have health care live in apartments. that may be his latest etch-a-sketch moment. listen to what he told mike barnicle a couple years ago on "morning joe." same question, same subject. listen to how the answer is different. >> do you believe in universal coverage? >> oh, sure. it doesn't make a lot of sense for us to have millions and millions of people who have no health insurance and yet who can go to the emergency room and get entirely free care for which they have no responsibility,
